Reviewed 1 February 2012

We stayed here 3N n absolutely loved it. The decor is nice n the staff were very friendly. Always greeting you with a smile n breakfast was good.

We stayed in room 201 n the only thing we did not like was the little smell from the bathroom. But nothing that a spray of something couldn't fix.

Got this as a last-minute hotel at an internet cafe on hotels.com. Off the main Ao nang strip on a quiet road (with many other hotels), but walkable if you want the nightlife. Room was spacious with the low and form Thai bed (king), standard kettle, slippers, robe, bottle of complimentary water. Didn't have a chance to use the pool, although it looked really nice. Complimentary breakfast was very good (although we shouldn't have stuffed ourselves before going to our Smart Cooking cooking class right afterwards), a mix of Thai and western choices. Only drawback was that the door was similar to a dressing room's, with slats, so not the best in terms of privacy, and sleeping in would have been difficult with the cleaners outside the door; but we were up early anyway. Nice, romantic, and relaxing place, which I would recommend. Front desk helped us sign up for Smart Cooking cooking class, which we totally recommend (a lot of fun, learning, and food).

We stayed in this hotel for five nights. The room was spacious with a good air-con and a nice little balcony; not much to complain except that the bed was rather hard and our room (superior) was in the lowest floor which meant loads of stairs. It was kept clean and two water bottles/day were provided. We liked the breakfast (the omelettes were very tasty) and the staff was friendly and helpful.
The location is good, just short walk to the beaches and the centre and the there was no noise coming in from the street at night.

Stayed here for several days and was amazed at how friendly and helpful the staff was. Their English is great and they will go out of their way to help in booking tours (at reasonable prices too). Hotel has very cool Japanese style architecture built onto the side of a hill. Delicious full breakfast in the mornings and only a short walk from the main road. Highly recommended! Only complaint was that the bed was a little firm, but that's pretty standard in Thailand.

We stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon and used it as a base for day trips around the town. It was great. Very clean and well taken care of. Staff was so nice, best help we had from any hotel the entire trip.

Breakfast was simple but filling, the pool was a little strange being between two buildings but was nice. Our room was large and quite. It was about a 10 min walk to the main busy road, just perfect to get a good nights sleep.

There were lots of restaurant, massage parlors, and convent stores around. But it still felt like you were home after they closed, also not a lot of foot traffic.

What really made this hotel great was the staff, I would stay here again in the future.

This is an excellent hotel, well positioned away from the noisy centre. Friendly staff, we were given freshorange juice on arrival and shown to our room which was weirdly down four storeys from reception but in the daylight this all made sense. Clean and well worth the price. The walk to town only took 10 minutes or so, there were great canteen style restaurants a couple of minutes away. We are staying there again on our way back to Bangkok and really looking forward to it. The breakfast is good too.
